Sara’s Weeknight Meals: Season 12

Episode 1206: Weeknight Two for One

Easy weeknight cooking takes a strategy, and I have one of the best:  cooking a dish one night; then repurposing it into an entirely different meal for another night.   Food entrepreneur Maya Kaimal joins me to make a comforting Turkey Keema with sweet potatoes and ground meat.  On another night, that morphs into Indian stuffed peppers.    Then I sauté duck breasts for a quick meal.  I repurpose those same duck breasts in a very tasty Peking Duck Wrap.  Plus, I demystify spices on ‘Ask Sara.

Maya Kaimal grew up in a home steeped in Indian flavors, the daughter of a New Englander and a food loving physicist from South India.  As an adult she traveled there to learn about the food from aunties and cousins. Eventually she left her job at Saveur to launch a line of Indian sauces to help busy parents like herself.
